President Trump’s Rose Garden Event ‘Biggest Breach Of National Security In The History Of The Country’

Posted on

BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Mayor Marty Walsh called the White House’s Rose Garden event for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett “probably the biggest breach of national security in the history of our country.”

On September 26, President Trump held an outdoor ceremony at the Rose Garden, which was attended by about 200 people — many of whom were not wearing masks or following social distancing guidelines. There are also photos of some of the attendees inside the White House on Saturday.

“If you gather at a party of 25 people or more, there’s a chance that somebody is a carrier COVID, and all of a sudden now we have a super spreader event,” Walsh said. “We saw this at the White House last week. We saw about 100 people sitting on, I think it was the South Lawn or the Rose Garden. Nobody was wearing a mask. Nobody

Notre Dame back in spotlight after president caught in Rose Garden coronavirus storm

Posted on

Notre Dame is back in the national spotlight after the school’s president, Reverend John Jenkins, tested positive for covid-19 after attending a high-profile event at the White House.

Jenkins was pictured without a mask during a White House event at the Rose Garden nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on September 26. Some students of the school, which has instituted coronavirus mitigation protocols and briefly suspended in-person classes after an outbreak, immediately started a petition calling for the president to resign.

More than ten attendees — including the President of the United States Donald Trump and Jenkins — have since tested positive for covid-19, the disease caused by coronavirus.

Rev. Jenkins apologized for attending the event and “failing to lead as I should have.”

University of Notre Dame president tests positive for COVID-19 after attending White House Rose Garden ceremony with President Trump

Posted on

The University of Notre Dame’s president has tested positive for COVID-19, a school spokesman confirmed Friday morning, less than a week after he attended Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination ceremony at the White House without wearing a mask.

The Rev. John Jenkins has mild symptoms and contracted the illness “from a colleague he was in regular contact with at Notre Dame,” according to university spokesman Paul Browne.

Jenkins, who’s led the Catholic university since 2005, has drawn scrutiny in recent weeks for appearing not always to follow COVID-19 safety precautions.

In August, Jenkins sent an apology to students after he was photographed taking a group picture with students standing around him, and within 6 feet, when the school reopened for in-person classes. The photo, which was shared widely on social media, appeared to show everyone wearing masks.

More recently, Jenkins came under fire for not wearing a mask when

House of Representatives impeaches President Donald Trump

Posted on

The House voted 230-197 to charge Trump with abuse of power and 229-198 to charge him with obstruction of Congress. The votes were largely split along party lines: just two Democrats voted against both articles, Reps. Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, who is expected to soon switch parties. A third, Rep. Jared Golden of Maine, voted for one impeachment article. Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, voted present for both articles.

Republican-turned independent Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan voted to impeach Trump on both counts.
